    Prevent moisture in stadium electrical systems with 3M™ Scotchlok™ 314


    • Scotchlok 314

      The electrical systems used in stadiums are often exposed to harsh weather conditions such as heavy rain and moisture, creating serious consequences if they fail, with events potentially cancelled or delayed. Problems can occur in hard to reach areas such as floodlights or roof lights, making repair and maintenance difficult and expensive.

      Moisture can get into places such as the junction boxes that connect to lighting and other electrical systems, creating poor and unsafe connections. These problems can be solved using 3M™ Scotchlok™ 314 Insulation Displacement Connectors (IDC’s), which prevent moisture from getting into electrical installations and causing damage.

      Proven splicing technology designed for your specific applications

      Scotchlok™ 314 is an insulation displacement connector used for assembling electrical installations. The wires are inserted into the connector, and when the installation is complete, the connection is secured. This makes it easy and simple to work with, especially in difficult situations.

      Due to the connector’s moisture-repellent properties, it’s extremely good for outdoor electrical installations such as exterior lights, signs, sprinkler systems, landscape lighting and other moisture resistant applications at low voltage.

      • A “live-spring” joint is made by driving the “U” contact down into the connector
      • As the “U” contact is pressed into the connector, it grasps the conductors as it displaces insulation
      • The contact grips the conductor(s) and holds with firm, resilient pressure

      Scotchlok™ IDCs incorporate a full wire range capability, an increased port size that accommodates up to 4.82mm insulation sizes, double “U” elements and a solvent-resistant plastic construction. There are 15 different 3M™ Scotchlok™ IDCs to choose from to meet a variety of uses, including fixture, appliance, automotive, marine and control circuit wiring.

      3M™ Scotchlok™ IDCs have a range of approvals and ratings that meet with industrial standards. To learn more or request a call with a 3M expert please click on the links below.
